Starting with a walking tour of Dubrovnik Old Town and ending with a stroll around its City Walls, this guided visit of Dubrovnik leaves no stone unturned.
The medieval walled town of Dubrovnik was built to be shut down for an extended period of time in case of an attack or an epidemic. In order to survive if the need arose, very early on Dubrovnik had a sewer, running water, a pharmacy, granary and other epitomes of advanced civilizations. After meeting your guide at Pile gate, you will explore this UNESCO World heritage site before climbing the city walls. An unparalleled vantage point, the walls deliver a unique perspective onto the treasures so worth protecting.
“.... those who seek paradise on Earth
should come to Dubrovnik”
(George Bernard Shaw)

‘The Winter is Coming’, so perhaps best use the warm days to explore the capital of Westeros, the King’s Landing.
In its real-life, the Game of Thrones King’s Landing is known as Dubrovnik Old Town. Its stone streets, medieval towers and busy squares were the set for several seasons of the HBO’s mega popular TV show. As you wander around with a die-hard-fan of a guide, spot famous locations in their everyday attire, such as the Walk of Shame stairs, the Littlefinger’s brothel, Red Keep at fort of St. Lawrence, the tower of the Undying among the City Walls. The GOT producers dubbed Dubrovnik as “completely out of a George Martin novel” and this walking tour of Dubrovnik will vividly illustrate what made them think so.
In the true sense of the word it is the city where western and eastern civilization collide. This is a city of poetry, a city of stone and sleepy, narrow winding streets. It is a city where the traveller from the North feels the first dashes of Mediterranean air imbued with scents of citrus and sea, and the traveller from the South reaches the first glimpses of the continent beyond. The town is exceptional for its dwellings and monuments assembled harmoniously over the centuries thanks to favourable geographical conditions and a sound economic climate. Experience sights such as the Old Bazaar and the Turkish House. After the guided tour of the town enjoy some free time for strolling around and browsing among the many old craft shops or maybe have lunch in one of the picturesque local restaurants.
